    26 Inexpensive And Environmentally-Friendly Products

    Doing your part to help save the environment doesn't have to cost a fortune.

    1. Some collapsible silicone straws that fold up and fit into a small carrying case, so you can easily bring them wherever you go and always feel good about helping save those turtles.

    2. A reusable silicon bag with so many uses, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Need to steam vegetables? Check! Freeze fruit for smoothies? Double check! Pack a lunch? Triple check!

    3. A foldable reusable bag you should always keep with you. You really never know when you're going to be out and walk by a Trader Joe's with no line that is just begging for you to come in and purchase at least three bags of the cauliflower gnocchi...

    4. A set of unbreakable plates made of wheat straw (so they're biodegradable).

    5. A compostable bin with a rotating handle so you can put all your food scraps in it and then just pick it up and carry it to the outdoor composter without dealing with whatever smell situation is inside.

    6. A set of cotton produce bags to take to the grocery store with you so you can keep your produce fresh and stop using all those plastic bags.

    7. A pack of beeswax food wraps that'll replace your need for plastic wrap all together. All you have to do is use the warmth of your hands to mold the wrap over a bowl, container, or food item, and as it cools, it will create a seal to protect it.

    8. A French press designed to make you feel so fancy and down-right Parisian as you make coffee sans paper filter.

    9. A pack of dryer balls because you've been frustrated with your lackluster dryer that really doesn't actually dry your clothes for too long. Stop yelling "You have ONE job" at it and add these to your loads to dry everything in a quarter of the time.

    10. A bamboo toothbrush you'll be b-rushing to use all the time because your teeth will feel so clean, and you'll never need another plastic toothbrush again.

    11. A set of silicone reusable tea infusers so you can get your caffeine (or just tea) fix without constantly throwing out tea bag after tea bag.

    12. A seven-piece portable flatware set you can roll up and take with you and then tell every take-out restaurant you won't be needing their plastic silverware.

    13. Some silicone stretch lid covers that fit over bowls, cups, glassware, jars, and even fruits and vegetables to keep freshness in and plastic wrap out.

    14. Cloth napkins you can totally use every day because they're not just for special occasions. Or, if you think about it, using cloth napkins just makes every day a special occasion.

    15. Some bamboo towels that'll replace six-month's worth of paper towels, so you can keep your home clean, feel good about the impact you have on the environment, *and* never have to worry about using tissues to clean up a spill because that's all you have left in your house because you forgot to pick up some paper towels from the store on your way home.

    16. A reusable cover for your sweeper that you can just throw in the wash when you're done wet or dry-moping your floor.

    17. A coffee tumbler so you can – once and for all – stop getting disposable coffee cups every time you decide to stop by your local shop in the morning. Plus, this baby keeps your coffee hotter for longer.

    18. A double edge razor made out of bamboo that not only looks better in your bathroom than a disposable plastic one, but actually does a better job of giving you a closer, smoother shave.

    19. A compostable sponge that works just as hard (or harder) than the sponge you currently use to give your dishes the deep clean they deserve.

    20. A set of snack and sandwich bags designed to look so good that everyone will be asking where you got them from so they can get their own. You'll turn into the trendsetter you've always wanted to be. 😎

    21. A menstrual cup that will be the only product you'll use during your period every month. Say goodbye to monthly trips to the drug store to pick up tampons and pads!

    22. A set of collapsible containers you can use for leftovers both at home or at a restaurant. Just keep them collapsed and in your bag till you're done eating!

    23. Or a set of glass storage containers you'll feel so much better about microwaving food in. Plus, these may save you from the avalanche that is your Tupperware cabinet.

    24. Some compostable poop bags because your furry friend can also do their part to help the environment!

    25. A popcorn popper you just fill with kernels, ~pop~ in the microwave, and end up with delicious popcorn in minutes.

    26. A biodegradable bento box with four compartment to fit different kinds of food so you can bring a complete lunch to work *and* feel good about saving money at the same time.
